Behind the times

It totally amazes me how far behind New Hanover County is in the recycling area. I have lived in many other areas of the country and without exception there was not only recycling as a regular activity, but there was curbside pickup as a normal part of it. I know there are funds issues with any process, but how can we not afford to have a focused and planned recycling policy? It is dumbfounding that in a community of this size that it has not been implemented years ago, but then again, this area had to be forced into doing something about an aged sewer system as well. Why are our community leaders not leading a charge on this? I know that garbage is not very "sexy" to talk about, but let's get with it.
